chenin grown on limestone.

Story: Alexandre Giquel studied in Amboise for winemaking (like Marie Rocher) and then became an expert in training draft horses. Chenin grown on limestone, clay and flint-rich dirt soils and vinified in vat. Lots of stone fruit (Ripe nectarine, Goldrush apple) with a zest of citrus on the nose. BEAUTIFUL. 

THE DETAILS 
  • Based in Noizay (Vouvray Appellation), not far from Frantz Saumon, and this is his first commercial vintage. 
  • The labels were drawn by Hubert Poirot-Bourdain, a French press illustrator
  • We met Alex in the Loire at our last fair and the most sterile setting of them all, Levée de la Loire. After a haze of crowded tables and reaching over throngs to snag a taste of culty wines, tasting with Alex was the opposite. No line; nobody in the US had ever imported his wines (they were only being sold in Paris until we brought them to the shop)
